The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Ridgeview Medical Center, based out of Waconia, MN, is seeking caring individuals who are veterans who would like to train to serve as Hospice volunteers. Hospice volunteers provide support and companionship to veteran patients and their families at a very difficult time.
Prospective volunteers need to complete our initial application process (health screen/blood draw, background/fingerprint check and orientation packet), followed by hospice interview, at least 1 or more favorable reference, and successful completion of Hospice volunteer training.
Applicants need to be at least 18 years old and able to provide their own transportation.
If you have the time and desire to serve fellow veterans in this specialized capacity, please go to Ridgeviewmedical.org and complete a volunteer application, or contact us at 952-442-2191, ext. 35593.
